Angry AIM's "DIRECT CONNECT" with possible firewalls?

PLEASE HELP ME Since I got a new computer with Win XP Pro... many times while trying to "direct connect" with people on AIM to send pics, etc, it will not let me. Is there something prohibitting me from doing this? The XP firewall is not enabled (under the network settings).

Anyone have any ideas?? Please let me know. I'm new to this site... thanks!
